    Actually, it looks like i'm a dumbass for a different reason..

    The consensus seems to be the fact that the tire was really, really old and the fact that i didn't have rim strips was the cause of the big bang, not the tube being small.

    well add to that the fact that you're stretching out the tube too much

    Not the issue in this case. Not even close.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    also siding with shiggy, the lack of rim strips is almost certainly what caused that one.

    Hahaha, you should read that post not for the warning factor but for the humour. Poor guy thought he was helping everyone out but instead he came out looking the fool.

    Anyways, after the brief scare I am going to continue using 1.25-1.5" tubes in my 2.0" tires as I have the last few years.

    I've run 1.25/1.5s in 2.35" tires...

    for over a decade, without problems, which is why I ignored the tool's threads when he posted them originally.
    I don't post to generate business for myself or make like I'm better than sliced bread
